Dodgers add fuel to Giants feud with custom t-shirts

The Los Angeles Dodgers have added more fuel to the fire in their on-going feud with Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants.

Days after infielder Max Muncy coined the phrase “Go get it out of the ocean“ after hitting a home run into McCovey Cove against the Giants ace, Muncy and teammate Enrique Hernández were spotted sporting t-shirts with the same phrase prior to Friday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.

Max Muncy trades verbal barbs with Madison Bumgarner in Dodgers’ win - Los Angeles Times

By the time Muncy rounded first the two were in a full-blown argument, screaming and gesturing at each other. Plate umpire Will Little intervened, but the two were still jawing at each other as Muncy pulled into the plate.

“He took exception to me watching the ball, I guess,” Muncy said of Bumgarner. “He said, ‘You don’t watch the ball. You run.’ ”

And Muncy’s response?

“I told him, ‘If you don’t want me to watch the ball, you can go in the ocean and get it,’ ” he said. “I don’t even know if he heard it. As I was rounding the bases, I yelled it at him. He was yelling at me. We were kind of going back and forth and that was it. Just a couple guys competing.”

Max Muncy’s challenge after breakout season with Dodgers – do it again – Orange County Register

Do teams really need a year to figure out a player now?

Muncy acknowledges the “Year Two challenge” will be considerable.

“One of the biggest differences probably is, when I go up there in the batter’s box, teams aren’t going to be thinking, ‘Oh, here’s a guy – we know what he did in Oakland. He struggled,’ ” Muncy says. “Now it’s going to be, ‘OK, we can’t make a mistake against this guy.’ I do think that will be one of the biggest differences – that guys are going to be obviously a little more alert. Not saying I’m Miguel Cabrera out there. I think that will probably be one of the biggest challenges from Day One. It’s not going to be easy.

“That’s probably the challenge everyone faces. You talk about Cody (Bellinger) and CT. When Cody comes up, it’s ‘OK, he’s a rookie. Let’s see if he can hit this pitch. Let’s see if he can handle this.’ He does, then the next year it becomes, ‘OK, let’s see if he can do this.’

“Once they start getting information on you, that’s always the Year Two challenge. … There’s so much information now. They can tell on day games, on Tuesday, he does this. Don’t throw this pitch on a Tuesday day game. Or on a Wednesday, he hits this pitch. They have that information now – which is a little ridiculous. But they can break down every centimeter of your swing.”
